How to tell if you are effaced?


So i check my cervix and i can feel i am 2 fingertips dilated but how do you tell if you are effaced?

I have clean hands when i check my cervix and know all the risks etc so please no lectures on checking my cervix

I have tried to google it but it doesn't tell you how to feel if you are effaced, anyone know?

I was kinda wondering this too as my doctor doesnt do internals. I have a friend who's doctor did internals from week 36 on until her due date...just feel so lost not knowing what is going on with my body!

my midwife doesn't do internals either so i just have to check myself. I think effaced may mean how flat your cervix is, as it is usually raised up and when it is completely flat then you are 100% effaced but i am only guessing from what i have read
